Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay Opens on Chula Vista Bayfront

Elevated RV Resort Offers Fully Furnished Vacation Rentals, Spacious RV Sites and Unparalleled Amenities; Sets News Standard in Outdoor Hospitality

SAN DIEGO - May 6, 2021 - Sun RV Resorts announced today the opening of Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay, formerly Costa Vista RV Resort, its highly anticipated RV resort, located on Chula Vista's scenic bayfront. The resort offers an outdoor vacation experience, pairing the modern comforts of home with the convenience of an upscale resort, serving as a trailblazer in the outdoor hospitality industry. 

Situated on 19 acres of landscaped grounds, Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay offers a high-end outdoor experience and includes options for every type of traveler, including RV sites, vacation rentals, premium amenities and more. The resort's 197 well-appointed standard, deluxe and premium RV sites are equipped with spacious patios, stone paver fire pits, premium landscaping, and outdoor furniture. The property provides back-in and pull-through RV sites, ranging from 30-35 feet wide and providing each space with approximately 1,500-2,000 square feet. 
Complementing the RV sites are the resort's 49 beautifully appointed one- and two-bedroom cottage-style vacation rentals, some with bay-front views. The coastal upscale vacation rentals sit on the resort's palm tree-lined promenade and the bayfront. Each vacation rental is approximately 400 square feet, fully furnished with a kitchen, outdoor furniture and stone firepits, designed to accommodate multiple style stays, including families, couples and small groups.
"We have been working on this project since 2017 and have been proud to play an integral role in The Port of San Diego's Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan," said Nick DiBella, SVP of Operations for Sun RV Resorts. "Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay will not only redefine traditional travel, but will help transform the city of Chula Vista into a destination. With San Diego Bay as a backdrop and exceptional amenities, Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay will make for an unforgettable experience and we look forward to finally welcoming travelers and locals to our beautiful resort."

Built by leading commercial construction company Swinerton, the $56M project broke ground in September 2019 as part of the Port of San Diego and The City of Chula Vista's 500+ acre Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan and is the first major project to reach completion. The plan, aimed to transform the Chula Vista Bayfront into a premier waterfront destination, also includes a resort hotel and convention center, Sweetwater bike path, parks, promenades and more.
"This new RV resort is an incredible addition to the Chula Vista Bayfront and is so much more than an RV park - it's a destination and an experience with great public access, recreational opportunities and bay and mountain views like you've never seen," said Commissioner Ann Moore, Chula Vista's representative on the Port of San Diego Board of Port Commissioners. "This is just the start of what's to come for the Chula Vista Bayfront."
In addition to its RV sites and vacation rentals, Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay boasts a variety of year-round programming and unparalleled resort amenities, including:  

  • Sparkling pool, kids splash pad, jacuzzi spa and indoor/outdoor fitness center  
  • Onsite café & bar  
  • Exclusive Sun Stream High Speed Internet service at pedestal to download and/or stream movies, shows and videos
  • Poolside lounge equipped with grill and movie screen  
  • Extensive entertainment areas including a putting green, basketball court, arcade/game room, pickleball court, playground and more 
  • Skydeck with private gathering rooms and open seating areas with firepits  
  • Spacious patios, seating areas and premium landscaping  
  • Access to beautiful parks, promenades and open space  
  • Views of the San Diego Bay and famous Coronado Bridge 

The resort's onsite Getaway Cafe & Bar serves American, Mexican and Southern California-inspired dishes, as well as rotating local food trucks nightly upon opening. Their expansive indoor/outdoor eating areas and poolside deck provide scenic panoramic views of the San Diego Bay.
Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay was expertly designed by award winning full-service architectural firm, Tucker Sadler Architects, to meet the needs of all types of travelers while maintaining an elegant flare and a keen eye on San Diego's iconic architectural style. 
"The Port of San Diego has been in planning efforts with the City of Chula Vista to revitalize the bayfront for many years - their collective vision is now coming to fruition," said Greg Mueller, CEO of Tucker Sadler Architects. "Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay is an extraordinary beginning to several other future developments in Chula Vista. Tucker Sadler Architects obtained the entitlements and provided design, architecture and space planning for the project. Sun Communities selected this site for its beautiful bayfront, spectacular views and pedestrian connectivity. Tucker Sadler is extremely proud of the masterplan development."

Sun Outdoors San Diego Bay is located at 825 E St, Chula Vista, CA, near some of the area's top attractions including the Living Coast Discovery Center, downtown San Diego and the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center.
